Since this is the absolute last update of our KS-1, we would like to grab the opportunity to thank you one last time for the support you showed us in our very first appearance here and hope you liked the rewards you selected!
We would be double honored if that trust was portrayed one more time in our new Kickstarter, this time with a much higher funding goal and aiming to fund as many plastic kits as possible.
First of all best wishes once again to all for a happy 2016, with health, joy and love.
Now, as promised a few days ago for those who are interested in honoring and supporting us in our 2nd Kickstarter, which we hope will be even better than the 1st and allow us to unlock our first crowdfunded plastics, we are happy to announce that we launch on Tuesday 12th of January!
For me, pictures like those above are what I see when miniatures are created and that's what I envision for Shieldwolf. Those are not just "some minis" but it's a whole new fantastic world that comes alive through passion, dedication and love all hobbyists share when they bring together their armies and clash in amazing battles! With true high quality miniatures and a game that can grow over time, this passion can spread out & reach even more people to support and grow our Community :-)
that's not all naturally, we had promised more teasers and we do everything in our grasp to hold to our word! :-) As most of you already know all the kits we have planned all these past months are multi-part, allowing a number of conversions and modularity in each kit for truly unique models. Here are two more that will be possible through the 1st of the planned plastic kits. And this time we are going much more plastic heavy for the troops necessary in "War is Coming".
"War is Coming" ruleset
We have had some issues in the uploading of the PDF (some parts of the file keep getting lost for reasons we cannot explain), but we are fighting to make it available anyday now. We think a lot of people will like how it works out and enjoy the game.
So... till January 12th!
Exact time of launch will be communicated via our webstore frontpage, Facebook page and some other websites we are in contact with. Hopefully you liked what we had to show you today.
Hello everyone! A very merry Christmas to you and your beloved & a very happy 2016!
This is our last update for 2015, we think we have wrapped everything up and now off to some very-well deserved (albeit few) days of rest. January is closer than ever and we are set hoping for a brilliant new year!
Have all rewards from KS-1 shipped out?
Affirmative. According to our data, we have sent out to the last backer! Many of you have messaged us to confirm the delivery and some (thankfully very few) have noted some mispacks, which we have already prepared and shipped out the past days. IF however for some wicked reason someone has not received their rewards, please let us know by sending us a message, we look forward to dealing with any issues as much as you do!
When will KS-2 launch?
For those of you who choose to honor us a 2nd time with your faith and support, we will have communicated the exact launch date in the first days of January. We will be posting news and teasers in both our FB page and webstore. We will also post two updates on January (#41 & #42): #41 will have teasers and date of launch, #42 will be after we launch as a last reminder.
Anything else we should know about?
Well, I'm writing it here but not sure if it interests you much or not, lol :-) The past 3 weeks we have had one mishap after the other :-( -One of our USB sticks with some material we had saved decided to end its function/life, which caused us issues. -The new 360's for our website are taking more time than initially planned for. -A parcel with the twin-headed Dragon sent to one of our painters came back to us(!) for reasons we still haven't explained, making us waste valuable time. -The bank made a mistake and blocked our payment methods(!). While they acknowledged their mistake we were forced to close down our website's frontstore in what is probably the most ludicrous time of the year. On top of that we have only re-established the PayPal payment method, with the CreditCards still needing some days to be re-abilitated. -"War is Coming" PDF is going through a number of changes and we are frantically working on making it available in the next 9 days... -Siberias Lions sold out! :-)The demand was much higher than we had initially foreseen. For some reason it seems players from other games are purchasing them exclusively for the mounts (as it so happened in KS-1 with you backers), which brings us to a point to commence considering selling them also individually (just like we did with the lions-only pack as you asked during the 1st KS).
This is definitely going to happen for the ice warbears in KS-2, were we will be offering a warbear-only pack pledge
So, wrapping up KS-1...
In our first Kickstarter, we managed
a) to have the Pledge Manager available and sent to everyone after 2 weeks of the funded project.
b) We also shipped an "early wave" of rewards that were already in stock within 28 days of the funded project.
c) We maintained regular monthly updates with as much information and pictures as we could provide and answered all questions in the comment section + messages within 48 hours (usually within 24 hours).
d) We managed to ship and fulfill as early as two months earlier the promised rewards. e) Finally, we trust the feedback from you, the backers, justified your pledges and really superb quality product is now in your hands.
All in all (for rookies) we think we did good! :-D
Last but not least...!
From the entire Shieldwolf Miniatures Team, a very big "Thank you"! We appreciate the faith you bestowed upon us and we hope the rewards you received paid this back to you. We really appreciate this, it means so much :-)
